Essen is a Springboard to Europe for Vellco
This year sees Vellco make its first appearance at Reifen 2008 in a move that also marks the company’s first show involvement outside of the UK. Vellco, which describes itself as “one of the largest and most successful truck tyre casing collection specialists in the UK” will be exhibiting in hall 6, stand 322, and is seeking to capitalise on the progress the company has made in European truck casing markets in recent years. According to company representatives, Vellco’s recent European progress has “enabled significant advances” for the North Yorkshire based company.
Vellco’s Business Development Director, John Campbell commented: “We have recently signed a three-year contract with one of the leading European tyre manufacturers to collect and pre-sort their truck casings and we view this new contract as an excellent springboard for Vellco’s future activities.”
As winners of the 2007 TAFF Award for the best environmental company in the UK tyre industry, Vellco has been nominated again in the same category for the 2008 awards. Vellco holds a number of contracts for extensive tyre collection and automotive waste recycling with some of the UK’s leading tyre retail chains.
